in my mailbox (33). January 30, 2010

Posted by Katie in in my mailbox.

In My Mailbox explores the contents of my “mailbox” on a weekly basis. I’ll be using this as a book and contest round-up tool to show what I’m getting ready to review. If you would like to participate and have your own “In My Mailbox” post, you can find more information here at The Story Siren.

This was an unusually busy week in terms of books. Highly unusual.

Library Check-Out

“Into the Wild Nerd Yonder” by Julie Halpern, “Charles and Emma” by Deborah , “Fat Cat” by Robin Brande, and “Vibes” by Amy Kathleen Ryan.

Most of these are recommendations I found through the Unsung YA project.


“Emily Goldberg Learns to Salsa” by Micol Ostow, “Serendipity Market” by Penny Blubaugh, “Cuba 15” by Nancy Osa, “A Step From Heaven” by An Na, “One Whole and Perfect Day” by Judith Clarke, “Silver Phoenix” by Cindy Pon, “Sofi Mendoza’s Guide to Getting Lost in Mexico” by Malín Alegría, and “Shine, Coconut Moon” by Neesha Meminger.

“Scarlett Fever” by Maureen Johnson and “The Mark” by Jen Nadol.

For Review

“Before I Fall” by Lauren Oliver.

So, what’s in your mailbox?
